And I was just about to offer you the ones I have on the wreck. They look to be either octalink or ISIS drive. They have also been run over by a bus and needed a new chainring (the existing one being a little worn).

I may have some cranks you might be interested in. I need to hear back from STA insurance before I give anything away. Also may need to get the assessed to determine their condition post-wreck. They would be square taper and would probably need a new chain ring (its a bit worn, 48 teeth). Not sure o...

Remember this time last year? Milano-San Remo in the wind, snow and rain? Apparently the majority of the peloton was wearing Castelli Gabba jackets/jerseys, most against sponsorship agreements (they removed the Castellit logos).
Not sure how much they cost.
